Saturday crafts : Eggs for Easter

Today’s kids craft is all about the Easter Egg. With my painted wooden egg from the dollar store. Inspired ny easy recipe for baked eggs for Easter morning.

The painted Egg :

I found these Egg shaped wooden forms at my local dollar store in the Easter craft section. I painted this one and decorated with paper scraps. And a few tiny stickers.

With flower punch :

Flowers from punch

This wooden egg is painted in stripes and decorated with stripes of paper, flower punch and sequins.

Baked Eggs in muffin tins:

Preheat the oven to a steady 350˚ and butter six cups in a standard-size muffin tin. Skip the paper liners—we’re not actually making muffins here. Meanwhile, sauté a chopped onion with a little oil or butter. Once that’s done, add diced veggies to the pan and sauté until cooked through. I used butternut squash, but you could also go with bell peppers, tomatoes, or greens. Whatever you use, cut it small so it cooks quickly and fits in the pan. Remove from the heat and divide the cooked vegetables between the prepared muffin cups.

Crack a dozen eggs into a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper, and break up with a whisk, mixing as if you were going to make an omelet. Pour the eggs over each prepared cup and place in the oven. Bake until just set, about 12-15 minutes, depending on your oven. You can store these in the fridge and reheat gently during the week.
